“Just Roll with It” Serving up Recipes and Humor

Hello everyone! It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, beautiful day in the neighborhood, the weather is so nice!

Y’all know I go to the Mansfield Assembly of God Church and over the years we have had some funny things happen and it either involves a Weaver or a Black. Wednesday night we had an ice cream social at the city lake and they got to telling stories and I literally laughed till I hurt. You get Ronnie Black and Bill Weaver together and it gets funny real quick. Add Justin Weaver to the pot and you have a comedy act.

Do y’all remember Froug’s store that was at Phoenix Village Mall? I remember it well, we loved to shop there. A certain Sunday School teacher went there to shop for Christmas gifts for her Sunday School class and she found the prettiest little wooden boxes with a leaf design on the top. Christmas rolls around and she gives all the girls in the class one of those pretty wooden jewelry boxes. Everyone loved their little wooden boxes until…one of the boys realized that it was a marijuana leaf on top of the box. He decided he better inform the teacher; she was devastated to think she gave a gift with a marijuana leaf on it. She goes to all the girls and gathers the boxes up and takes them back to Froug’s and demands to see the manager. After a discussion with the manager, she got her money back. I bet that was the buzz of the week at the church. Made me laugh really hard. That was years and years ago, so I can imagine how funny it was. I will have more stories next week of things that happened at church.

This week’s recipe continues to be something good for fall. Good ole apple dump cake.

2 regular cans of apple pie filling (I always like to cut my apples into smaller pieces)
1 spice cake mix or caramel pecan cake mix
3/4 cup of butter (y’all know I use a little more if needed)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a pan with Pam. Dump the apple pie filling into the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Sprinkle the dry cake mix over the top and spread evenly over the apples. Melt the butter and cover the entire cake mix with it and bake for 30-35 minutes and serve with ice cream or Cool Whip on top. Also, you can drizzle a little caramel ice cream topping on top. Enjoy, have a blessed week!
